5 Key Research Findings from Fact.MR’s Report on Dual Chamber Prefilled Syringes Market for Forecast Period 2017-2026
by Team Fact.MR
According to Fact.MR’s recently collated research report, a spectacular growth has been envisaged for the global dual chamber prefilled syringes market in the forecast period (2017-2026). Worldwide sales of dual chamber prefilled syringes are poised to bring in approximately US$ 3,300 Mn revenues by 2026-end.
Dual Chamber Prefilled Syringes – Efficient Solution for Reconstituting Lyophilized Drugs during Administration
There has been an incessant requirement for reconstituting the lyophilized drugs during their administration, along with growing necessity of tackling potential compliance and safety issues associated with the reconstitution. This has further led to the development of syringes that are capable of curtailing number of steps required for the reconstitution of drugs and making them available for injection. Dual chamber prefilled syringes are the most efficient solution to cater this requirement, as they enable immediate reconstitution within the syringe just prior to injection. Dual chamber prefilled syringes seek widespread utilization in storing biological substances and active pharmaceutical components, which cannot retain their stability for extended duration. These devices enable elimination of drug loss through maintenance of the drugs’ sterility prior to injection. Advancements in technology have resulted into improvements in the arrangement of liquid components in the syringes and injectors, while attracting more patients in opting for these efficient & safe syringes.
Lyophilized drugs have represented a robust penetration worldwide in the recent past. Lyophilized drugs account for largest share of all reconstitution-requiring injectable/infusible drugs. As a large number of injectable/infusible drugs have been developed for self-administration, special challenges are incurred for the drug developers. However, dual chamber prefilled syringes, which are particularly designed for simplifying reconstitution devoid of patient handling of diluent or drug, have become the mainstay option for delivering these drugs, meanwhile curtailing challenges faced by developers. With lyophilized drugs witnessing proliferated penetration, demand for dual chamber prefilled syringes will gain a significant upsurge in the foreseeable future.
